Avatar f tn There were a few red patches which upon close inspection looked like raised bumps but as it is itchy when I scratch it, no breaking the skin, there appears blood bruising under the skin which takes days to go. On my face there are red blotches which started a while ago and which I thought was rosecea. My face is also quite sensitive.

Avatar n tn Last night, while home alone, I noticed i had two very small, what I an only describe as small dots on the skin of my penis. Neither was raised, sore, itchy, or raw. The smaller of the two was a dull red, the other was more purple. They are both on the penis itself. The smaller about the size of a dimple, the other slightly larger. However, I noticed this morning when i woke up the smaller one, the reddish one, had gone, and it appears that the other one is fading a bit.
Avatar f tn But a few months ago I was experiencing this itching and developed a rash that kind of looked like round bruises all in a line in the front of my neck. It only happens on my neck area including around my collar bone and back of neck but mostly front of my neck. Does this sound like it could be related to a kidney problem. I only started worrying when I started having back spasms come and go on either side of my back.
Avatar n tn For the last few weeks, I've had incredibly itchy skin. Sometimes I get so itchy I scratch to the point of bruising badly! Right now I have a large bruise covering the entire inside of my right thigh, and many smaller bruises on my left thigh. As well I have a few small bruises on my upper arms and lower legs from scratching so much.
Avatar n tn If you describe these as bruises then I would assume that these are reddish to violaceous in color.Are they painful or itchy? Are these lesions swollen and blanch to the touch? At this point,one may consider contact or allergic dermatitis but just to allay your fears an immediate consult is necessary.You have mentioned of straining prior to the onset of the lesions.Do you have any associated headaches or dizziness? Any underlying disease like a bleeding problem, diabetes or hypertension?
Avatar n tn My legs have been covered with bruises (spots all over) for the past 2 months. I think that I am giving myself the bruises by itching my skin so hard, but I usually don't bruise easily. I am not taking any medications and as far as I know I do not have any allergies. I have also not changed any soaps or detergents or my diet. The only thing that has changed is that I moved about 3 months ago and am living in a different climate now.
Avatar m tn Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications. You can apply a mild steroid cream and take some antihistaminics.

Avatar f tn Hello- Recently I developed these little bumps on my body that are incredibly itchy. The first one I noticed was on my wrist and it looked like a little bug bite. I got this when I was on vacation in Maui and I thought it was just a bug bite because it was itchy. When I came home I started to get these bumps on the top and inside of my thighs. They have been so itchy that it keeps me up at night and I can't sleep.

Avatar n tn Yesterday, my 6 year old daughter told me that she has "bruises" on her arm, but they don't hurt. They are not raised, they almost look like freckles but under her skin. I thought maybe bug bites, but they're not raised at all, they're not itchy and they don't hurt. Nothing on her other arm. Any idea? I have a photo if that helps.

Avatar n tn The next day there is a bruise in the area and the veins seem to be close to the skin surface and that's it.... There is NO rash of any kind. Skin is normal. It has happened periodically over, I would say, the last 3-4 yrs. off and on. I have not really tracked the symptom, so I am sketchy on how many times it has happened. I plan on tracking it now, so I can possibly come up with an answer of why it is happening. I have talked with my Dr. concerning it.
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals, wool, soaps, cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used.
Avatar n tn I have itchy skin everywhere. It moves around. It's intense. I've had it for 4 weeks. It started when I was in Bali and continued since I returned a week ago. Been to doctors - blood tests only show low iron, but I've had low iron for 2 years. Lots of bacteria in Bali, diarreah now and then. Doctors gave me fungal cream which made it worse and Fluoxecillin which hasn't helped and another doctor told me to stop taking it anyway. Itch is worse when I get hot.
Avatar f tn A few weeks ago i started waking up to a itchy area in the same spots (ankle knee elbow) that would bout an hr later turn into HUGE PAINFUL BRUISES..At first i thought they were some kind of bug bite, went nuts at the thought so i had a inspection of my home and they found nothing but 1 very old DEAD bed bug.. But today (a few weeks later) woke up at my moms house with the same thing yet again on my elbow forehead and hand ..
Avatar f tn I have an itchy rash that started on the back of my hands and forearms and has moved to to the inside of the upper arms and ankles. The lower areas of the scalp also itch. Diphenhydramine and cold showers help slightly to relieve the intense itching. It appears as tiny white dots, then the skin turns bright pink when I scratch the itch. There are tiny bruises in the areas of the rash about the size of a dime.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with this guy about 2-3 weeks ago and a few days later i started getting all of these small itchy bumps like flea bites ALL OVER my inner thighs and inside of my butt cheeks.They itch really bad!! I noticed now that there are a few on my stomach.I looked up herpes and the pics look NOTHING like them. I thought maybe he had bed bugs or something but why only in these two areas?
Avatar n tn I have read where all over itching can be related to thyroid. Dry itchy skin also, etc. Anything is possible and nothing surprising. Good luck with the nodule results, I hope it comes out non-cancer. The same with your surgery.
Avatar f tn You can take some antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin. Although the bite may be itchy, avoid scratching it because you may damage the skin, and allow bacteria to get in, leading to infection. Continue using the steroids that your doctor has prescribed. However get an examination done from a dermatologist to rule out any tick bites which may later progress to Lyme’s disease.
Avatar f tn Hello, These red patches can be due to dermatitis skin or heat rash. If the rashes are itchy then eczema needs to be ruled out. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Wash the area with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid and take an antihistaminic in case of itching.
Avatar f tn but lately as i started growing up, (im 16 ), it got alot worse since last year ive been gettin red skin bumps on my skin all the time for no reason they were itchy and looked wierd for example, if i take a PEN, and draw a little not too deep line on my skin, 15 min later i find that area rising and forming a straight bump overlapping the pen . and also it felt itchy for no reason, and when i scratch it just a tiny bit, i form those big cluster of bumps where i can see my pores dilate .
Avatar n tn They are increasing in number and a few are starting to show up higher on my stomach. They are neither raised or itchy, and the skin doesn't feel any different or drier. They appeared around the time my menstruation started, but I don't think it is related - my period ended two days ago. Two months ago I got HPV, Hep A, Varicella and Meningococcal Conjugate shots. I looked up side effects and I shouldn't be having any this long after receiving them. I included a photo.
Avatar m tn I bruise very easily and when I bruise they're very nasty looking bruises from the simplest damage. When I work out in the gym my skin turns red everywhere, sometimes even becomes itchy. I can touch my self with one finger and watch my skin turn another shade, just from a small amount of preasure, such as a light touch. I get strech marks very, very easily, and they're not a lot of small thin ones like I see everyone else with, I'll get just a couple (3-4) dark and thick ones in areas.
